Rundle United Announcements, May 20 ’12

Thank You: Ruby and Bill Fisher who will be leading us in service on Sunday.


Strategic Direction Committee Reports:  We have been getting work done, and we’d like you to see the results so far.  A building audit by architect, George Berry, outlining maintenance work we must do in the future has been completed.  We also have a report by Joel den Haan, outlining how we can share Rundle with the community, and enable our church be maintained affordably.  Michel Berdnikoff has been busy finding funding sources for these proposed renovations.

We invite you to a meeting in the sanctuary on Tuesday May 22 at 5pm, so we can hear the reports and discuss their contents with George and Joel.  We welcome your thoughts and impressions on this important work.  Please speak to any member of the committee for questions on the committee.

Thrift Store: 2 RMUC volunteers are required every Saturday to facilitate a special sale of craft and souvenir items which have been donated and will appeal to tourists rather than Thrift Shop patrons.  The proceeds of the craft and souvenir sales will support the Canadian Food Grains Bank. There is a sign-up sheet in the Lonsdale Lounge,  please sign up for a few Saturdays to support this special initiative!

Banff Men’s Conference: The United Church of Canada invites all men on the Christian journey to join then for Faith, Community, Connection, Discovery and Fun at a series of workshops. October 12-14 at the Banff Centre, for further information please see flyer in Lonsdale Lounge and find a registration form attached.

Tour of New Zealand, January 5 – 25 2013: This 21 day tour explores mountains, geysers, hot mud pools, beaches, fjords and waterfalls and includes a cooking class and visits to the Hawks Bay and Marlborough wine regions. Hosted by Rev. Connie Thompson; Rev. Harry Steele and Barbra Gregg. For more info please see the brochure in Lonsdale Lounge.

Enjoy the long weekend!
